We do things differently at the club as we feel that the Long Term 

development of swimmers is the most important thing to consider

when putting swimmers in squads.

All swimmers will undertake a trial and if accepted they will be placed into one of two squads based on their age on or before 31st August (school year). Swimmers have the choice between which of the two squads they want to go into, the only difference being the level of commitment they want to make.

For swimmers who want to achieve an elite level then the (+) Squads are recommended as these will provide the right balance of land training and swimming to achieve the best results.


This said some swimmers are not able to commit to this much training so the club provides them with the opportunity to train at a high level without pressure to attend a minimum number of sessions. These swimmers can at any time (providing there is space) ask to move into one of the (+) squads.

White and White + Squads

Aged between 9-12 

Red and Red + Squads

Aged between 13-14

Black and Black + Squads

Aged over 15
